In game announcements:

  • On April 17th (we missed this one) Postal 2 has received it’s expansion “Paradise Lost”, 12 years after being originally released. Check out the trailer here.

  • On April 18th, there began a rumor; some would call it a wonderful thing, others not so much. A Reddit user made a post about a survey he’d taken wherein they’d discussed the context to Mass Effect 4. Read more about it here.

  • On April 21st, it was announced that Heroes of the Storm will be entering an Open Beta on the 19th of May and receiving a fully fledged launch on the 2nd of June. More details here.

  • On April 24th, Mad Max released their overview trailer, showing what to do and how to do things in the game. Watch it here.

In industry announcements:

  • On April 20th, AMD’s CEO has possibly let slip that  Windows 10 will be releasing in July. However, this is not an official announcement by Microsoft, but considering the source, this is probably valid. Full story here.

  • On April 24th, Steam announced that they are going to start adding  an option to add monetary value to mods in games like Skyrim. Many are devastated by this decision but who knows? It could make mods that much better. Check out our coverage here.
